Construction brought forward on Raglan office and library
26 February 2014
Media advisory: Construction
brought forward on Council’s Raglan office and
Construction on Waikato District
Council’s Raglan office and library is to commence one
week earlier than planned.
Council is keen to take
advantage of the fine weather and with the contractor able
to begin works sooner, construction will now begin Monday
10 March, as opposed to Monday 17 March.
This start date
will not affect the Raglan team’s move to the temporary
premises, which will still occur from 5pm Thursday 6 March,
with services resuming from 9am 17 March at 39 Bow Street
(the former New Zealand Post shop).
Customers are asked to
take care of any urgent Council business or books before the
close down period, or are welcome to visit one of
Council’s other offices.
For more information on the
project please see: www.waikatodistrict.govt.nz/News-events/Media-releases/Council’s-Raglan-library-and-office-to-move-as-ren.aspx and
for any queries around the construction, please contact
